It says Around Town but the headline is UTAH. Utah is not near Natick!! I think everyone should notRead More open an article on Patch unless they see their town's name in the headline. So If it doesn't say Natick, then we all know it is not LOCAL to the Natick Patch. The less clicks these Patch sites get, the fewer advertisers they will get and then perhaps they will realize if we want sensational news from across the country we'd go back to Patch's former owners AOL and the HuffPost! Those here from other Patch sites - I think you should do the same only click on articles that mention your community's name. No name. No click!

A Patch user says a group of whales, one of whom was allegedly injured by a boater, is doing fine.

Patty Kennedy you are just as irresponsible as Brent Champaco (editor) in perpetuating this fraud.Read More To quote you; "In fact" the Whale Hotline posting you used is of 3 whales at Chito Beach hundreds of miles away. Orca Network, Cascadia Research, and the Whale Museum hotline, have not reported ANY of this claimed whale activity. Yes Cascadia has lots of information. You should read it and educate yourself on the subject before making false claims to bolster this (your?) bogus story.
Patty Kennedy September 4, 2013 at 01:12 pm
Whyever are you so sure this is a fraud? Being more than a little offended at being told to educateRead More myself for "perpetuating this fraud" and making "false claims" I must offer that I went to a better source than anyone here. I just finished speaking at length with Annie Douglas from Cascadia Research, a marine biologist specializing in marine mammals of the Puget Sound. She confirmed what I suggested earlier. Among other things, she said that I could quote her and that a gray whale, traveling at 5 miles an hour could easily move from Chita Beach to Fox Island within a week. (My comment, since it really isn't "Hundreds of Miles" but about 100 miles as the whale swims). She said that some gray whales will hang around Whidbey Island which would be much, much closer. This Marine Biologist also said that there have been numerous reports of various marine mammals including these Fox Island Gray Whales, a recent Humpback whale in Budd Inlet, lots of Harbor Porpoises, Orcas and some Risso Dolphins off Alki which are highly unusual. Further, that it is definitely possible to have marine mammals including Gray Whales here throughout the summer. She also suggested that anyone who wishes to report a sighting may call them. Whenever possible, they will take out their boat and see if they too can catch a glimpse. Their phone number may be found online. For the record, I did not see these whales but I have seen lots of marine mammals including a few whales over the many, many years I have lived here, however this is the very first time I've been called a liar for saying so.

Liar? Naw. Enthusiastic with the facts. Definite yes. I posted concerning the anon 8/3/2013 reportRead More "none of the legitimate whale watch people have reported 3 gray whales in that area." Which you followed up with "In fact, the Whale Hotline posted a sighting of three gray whales on 8/3/2013 headed east...." Seems to me you are saying the Whale Hotline reported the same three whales reported that day? If not why the reference? Whales aren't unique to Puget Sound but the chances of three gray whales getting all the way to South Puget Sound (twice!!!) and staying or returning to the same area is really impossible. The State Ferries, many commercial and private watercraft, and waterfront views are now linked into the internet. So I'll still stick with I don't believe this report of whale abuse or the followup.
